Puerto Rico Continues to Lead in US Anti-Workplace Bullying Fight
The US Business community beyond Puerto Rico should be relieved as the criteria for unlawful bullying not only protects employees but also employers.
According to the guidelines, to be unlawful bully behavior It must be:
repetitive and abusive
arbitrary, unreasonable, or capricious
Can be verbal, written, or physical
Must have occurred repeatedly
Must be oblivious to the legitimate interests of the company
Must violate the employee’s protected constitutional rights
Must create an intimidating, humiliating, hostile, or offensive work environment
Proactive and positive leaders will likely embrace such regulations. Those who manage their workforces to “avoid lawsuits” will instead resist this change and continue to suffer from a disengaged workforce.
